The Childrens' Rights Dog Bore
Dog Bore: Liisa-Lotta Raag
Job: Adviser on children's rights. I work at the Estonian Ministry of Social Affairs.
Dog: Steffy and Baxter
Steffy is a dacshund mix and Baxter is a terrier mix from Estonia
How did you meet your canine companion?
I found them both on the Internet and they immediately caught my eye.
Steffy was only 1 month old when we took her in. Her previous owners wanted to put her down because she was from a "mistake" litter.
What’s the story behind your dog’s name?
Actually there isn't one. Me and my boyfriend just really liked the names. My brother actually wanted to name Baxter "Gucci" (like Gucci Mane) but we had already named him and didn't want to change it.
How has your life changed since you have had your dog?
It has changed a lot! We are constantly moving around and looking new places to go with them. The dogs love to be outdoors so I they kinda force us to be active as well :) We have discovered a lot of beautiful places thanks to Steffy and Baxter.
Which 3 words best describe your dog’s personality?
For Steffy it has to be: sweet, loving, protective.
For Baxter: playful, active and kinda crazy.
Who’s your dog’s favourite person?
I think that for both of them it's me, but Baxter really loves everybody.
What’s your dog’s superpower?
Oh that is a good question! I don't know...
Baxter is a crazy kisser, he just loooooves to lick everyone’s faces.
Steffy always knows when I am not feeling well so she just lays besides me tries to to keep me warm that way.
If your dog had a job, what would it be?
Baxter would definitely be an entertainer. He is so funny and likes to be at the centre of attention all the time. He even knows how to dance on two paws!
Steffy would be a teacher I think.
What’s your dog’s most unappealing / most embarrassing habit?
They both like to eat horse poop...That is disgusting.
Where can we find you hanging out with your dog?
Outdoors - parks, nature trails etc.
